# StartFlowRun

class

prefect.tasks.prefect.flow_run.StartFlowRun

(flow_name=None, project_name=None, parameters=None, run_config=None, wait=False, new_flow_context=None, run_name=None, scheduled_start_time=None, poll_interval=datetime.timedelta(seconds=10), **kwargs)[source]

Task used to kick off a flow run using Prefect Core's server or Prefect Cloud. If multiple versions of the flow are found, this task will kick off the most recent unarchived version.

Args:

  • flow_name (str, optional): the name of the flow to schedule; this value may also be provided at run time
  • project_name (str, optional): if running with Cloud as a backend, this is the project in which the flow is located; this value may also be provided at runtime. If running with Prefect Core's server as the backend, this should not be provided.
  • parameters (dict, optional): the parameters to pass to the flow run being scheduled; this value may also be provided at run time
  • run_config (RunConfig, optional): a run-config to use for this flow run, overriding any existing flow settings.
  • wait (bool, optional): whether to wait the triggered flow run's state; if True, this task will wait until the flow run is complete, and then reflect the corresponding state as the state of this task. Defaults to False.
  • new_flow_context (dict, optional): the optional run context for the new flow run
  • run_name (str, optional): name to be set for the flow run
  • scheduled_start_time (datetime, optional): the time to schedule the execution for; if not provided, defaults to now
  • poll_interval (timedelta): the time to wait between each check if the flow is finished. Has to be >= 3 seconds. Used only if wait=True. Defaults to 10 seconds.
  • **kwargs (dict, optional): additional keyword arguments to pass to the Task constructor

methods:                                                                                                                                                       

prefect.tasks.prefect.flow_run.StartFlowRun.run

(flow_name=None, project_name=None, parameters=None, run_config=None, new_flow_context=None, run_name=None, idempotency_key=None, scheduled_start_time=None)[source]

Run method for the task; responsible for scheduling the specified flow run.

Args:

  • flow_name (str, optional): the name of the flow to schedule; if not provided, this method will use the flow name provided at initialization
  • project_name (str, optional): the Cloud project in which the flow is located; if not provided, this method will use the project provided at initialization. If running with Prefect Core's server as the backend, this should not be provided.
  • parameters (dict, optional): the parameters to pass to the flow run being scheduled; if not provided, this method will use the parameters provided at initialization
  • run_config (RunConfig, optional): a run-config to use for this flow run, overriding any existing flow settings.
  • new_flow_context (dict, optional): the optional run context for the new flow run
  • run_name (str, optional): name to be set for the flow run
  • idempotency_key (str, optional): a unique idempotency key for scheduling the flow run. Duplicate flow runs with the same idempotency key will only create a single flow run. This is useful for ensuring that only one run is created if this task is retried. If not provided, defaults to the active task_run_id.
  • scheduled_start_time (datetime, optional): the time to schedule the execution for; if not provided, defaults to now
Returns:
  • str: the ID of the newly-scheduled flow run
Raises:
  • ValueError: if flow was not provided, cannot be found, or if a project name was not provided while using Cloud as a backend
Example:
    from prefect.tasks.prefect.flow_run import StartFlowRun

kickoff_task = StartFlowRun(project_name="Hello, World!", flow_name="My Cloud Flow")

prefect.tasks.prefect.flow_run.get_task_run_result

(flow_run_id, task_slug, map_index=-1, poll_time=5)[source]

Task to get the result of a task from a flow run.

Will wait for the flow run to finish entirely or dynamic task run results will not be properly populated.

Results are loaded from the Result location of the task which may not be accessible from where this task is executed. You will need to ensure results can be accessed.

Args:

  • flow_run_id: The flow run the task run belongs to
  • task_slug: The 'slug' of the task run you want to get the result of
  • map_index: If the task is mapped, the index you would like to access. By default, if given a mapped task, all of the child results will be loaded.
